Celebrating 22 Years of Export Achievement Call For Nominations

first_imgIt’s time to name names and recognize Nova Scotia’s outstanding exporters. Nova Scotians are being invited to nominate innovative, creative and resourceful export-related businesses for the 22nd annual Nova Scotia Export Achievement Awards. Seven Nova Scotia companies will be recognized for their skill and dedication through outstanding exporting achievements at the annual exporter-recognition event, being held at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax on Thursday, May 18. The awards are designed to honour exporters’ growth, innovation, partnerships and business volume and to recognize the contributions that exporters make to Nova Scotia’s economy. All award winners will be featured in promotional brochures, newspaper advertising and video presentations, as well as on cable television and several websites. Winning companies will receive the 2006 Nova Scotia Export Achievement Awards logo to use for promotional purposes. A unique, handcrafted award is presented to each winner at the award ceremony. Past winners say they have gained lasting and significant recognition as a result of winning an Export Achievement Award, making it an important marketing tool that helps raise the company’s profile at home, attracts new foreign customers and boosts employee morale. “The fact that we’re exporting around the world and that we’re getting attention in magazines and newspapers creates a tremendous sense of pride for our customers here,” said Marlon Lewis, CEO of Satlantic, winner of the Export Growth through Partnership Award, 2005. “Our export strategy is a key element of our business success,” said Tony LaPierre, president of Geoprojects Canada Limited, recipient of the Export Growth through New Markets Award in 2005. Nominations must be received by Tuesday, Feb. 28. For more information on the awards and for nomination applications see the website at . Applications are also available by calling Nova Scotia Business Inc. at 902-424-6814. The Nova Scotia Export Achievement Awards are presented by Nova Scotia Business Inc., the province’s business development agency. The private sector-led agency works to attract new businesses to the province and help those already in Nova Scotia expand through services such as export development and financing.last_img read more

(VPI), the nation’s first and largest provider of pet health insurance, commemorates Pet Parent’s Day on May 3 by teaming up with the Eric and Jessie Decker Foundation in support of Deckers Dogs.Eric Decker and Deckers Dogs team with Veterinary Pet InsuranceA partner of Freedom Service Dogs of America, Deckers Dogs helps fund the rescue, care and custom training of shelter dogs to assist our military veterans returning home with disabilities.Through Memorial Day (May 25), VPI will donate $5 (up to $10,000) to the Eric and Jessie Decker Foundation for every unique pet insurance quote generated at York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and his wife, country music singer Jessie James Decker, established Deckers Dogs in 2013 to support Freedom Service Dogs of America, an organization developed to help returning war veterans and military personnel transition from active duty and combat to civilian life. Active duty service members and veterans with disabilities are placed with highly specialized service dogs who help them find a new level of independence in their post-combat life.“We created Pet Parent’s Day eight years ago to recognize the bond that pet owners share with their furry family members. It’s a commitment founded on love and trust in one another,” said Curtis Steinhoff, director of communications for VPI. “It’s an honor to once again partner with Deckers Dogs on Pet Parent’s Day and help build invaluable bonds between these rescued service dogs and our wounded warriors.”For a typical service dog, the journey from shelter to service takes 10 months and costs approximately $25,000. With the help of the public’s support, Deckers Dogs has already funded the rescue, care and custom training of four service dogs for military veterans, with two additional matches already funded and underway.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

Eugene Levy on Schitts Creek Its The Straightest Thing Ive Ever Done

first_img Twitter It was never quite enough, those intermittent doses of Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy administered every few years via Christopher Guest’s ensemble movies. Not after SCTV, where the two Canadian actors made their names in the late 70s and early 80s, acclimating their fans to regular hits of their fearless, nuanced, out-there comic brilliance. Which is why the return of Schitt’s Creek is so welcome. The series, in which O’Hara and Levy star as a fallen, formerly wealthy couple reduced to living with their adult children in the show’s titular backwater town, kicks off its third U.S. season on January 11, on the cable channel Pop TV.

COCs Rigoletto plays into debate on male entitlement

first_imgAnna Christy in the English National Opera production of Rigoletto, which uses the same sets and costumes as the Canadian Opera Company version. (ENGLISH NATIONAL OPERA) The set-up for this tragic tale is simple: the Duke of Mantua is the lord of all he surveys, including every winsome lass. His jester, the hunchback Rigoletto, obsessively hides his daughter from this world so that she can remain the pure, unspoiled apple of his eye.The boss spreads his love around indiscriminately, with no concern for the lives or emotions of the women he touches. The servant hoards his love, with no concern for the life he is smothering in the process. The mixture of the two stirs up a boiling pot of rage and revenge. Advertisement These sorts of behaviours have been exploding in our faces in recent weeks, months and years, as we confront the self-entitlement of so many men. Yet we continue to hum “La donna e mobile” as we shower or as we leave the opera house. Login/Register With: Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Facebook Treasures of our culture sometimes clash with how things really ought to be. Giuseppe Verdi’s opera Rigoletto offers a case in point.It has been one of the world’s favourite operas since its premiere in 1851. One of its arias, “La donna e mobile” (“Women are fickle”), is known and enjoyed even by people who have never been inside an opera house. But that aria belongs to a piece of musical theatre that depicts men at their worst.The Canadian Opera Company opens its own production, last seen here in 2011, on Saturday at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. It will run for 10 performances until Feb. 23. Advertisementlast_img read more

Iraq head of UNs oilforfood programme ends visit to northern provinces

During his visit from 22 to 28 January to three Iraqi northern governorates, Benon Sevan, Executive Director of the UN Office of the Iraq Programme (OIP), met with local authorities and representatives of UN agencies to focus on ways to strengthen cooperation with the regional officials and remove bottlenecks in order to expedite delivery of humanitarian supplies and equipment.While in Dahuk, Erbil and Suleimaniyah, Mr. Sevan, who was accompanied by the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq, Tun Myat, also inspected many projects and visited hospitals, health centres and housing for internally displaced people and returnees.”We need to provide job opportunities, schools, health facilities in order to get these unfortunate residents out of these miserable living conditions,” he said, highlighting the need to improve the lot of returnees.On Monday, Mr. Sevan returned to Baghdad to resume his discussions with authorities there.Meanwhile, Iraq’s oil exports under the oil-for-food programme rose for the second consecutive week, averaging 2 million barrels per day in the week ending 25 January, the OIP said today. The exports generated some $200 million in revenue at current prices and rate of exchange, bringing to $1.18 billion the total earned since the December 2001 start of the current phase of the programme, which allows Iraq to use a portion of its oil income to buy humanitarian relief supplies. read more

Weir Minerals Africa wins major screening order in Indian iron ore mining

first_imgWeir Minerals Africa has received its biggest order from India to date – seven Linatex vibrating screens of various sizes for RBSSN, a mining and metals company based in Hospet, in northern Karnataka. The order includes the biggest screen Weir has supplied to India, with dimensions of 2.4 m by 4.8 m. Weir Minerals Africa’s Chris Dorlas says the order, which is destined for an iron ore application, is a milestone for the company, since it firmly establishes Weir Minerals’ footprint in India and will serve as a reference base for further sales in that country.The RBSSN order includes three VD18/38, one VD15/38 and one VD21/48 dewatering screens. Linatex dewatering screens incorporate a 45o sloping back section, fitted with slotted apertures across the direction of the flow. Incoming slurry is fed uniformly along the top of this back section, which acts as a vibrating drainage panel. The screen’s main deck slopes upwards at 5o and is fitted with smaller slotted apertures.“This design achieves exceptionally high dewatering and draining capacity,” Dorlas says, “making it possible in many cases to use smaller units than if one was using conventional dewatering screens. This, in turn, reduces the cost of the initial investment in the screens.”At the lowest point of the screen, where the sloping back and main deck meet, a pool of partially dewatered slurry forms. Here, solid particles bridge over the apertures and form a cake, which acts as a filtration bed, allowing only very fine particles to pass through. The vibrating action conveys the cake along the screen and out of the pool, where further dewatering takes place, depending on the porosity of the cake, which is finally discharged over the adjustable weir into the product chute.Vibration is produced by two linear motion low noise exciter motors operating at 980 or 1460 rpm. Alternatively, geared exciters with an external drive motor can be fitted to the larger screens. Both the vibrating motors and the geared exciter have been specifically designed to ensure long life, with minimum maintenance requirements.Easy adjustment of the amplitude of vibration and deck inclination, as well as the discharge weir plate, are features incorporated to suit changes in process requirements. A high solids recovery is achieved when the screen underflow is kept in closed circuit, with the only solid losses occurring as the very fine material exits in the cyclone overflow.The two large Linatex HG24/48 screens included in the RBSSN order are horizontal linear motion screens. Linear motion is produced by the action of counterweights on separate shafts, geared together to produce a straight line “throw”. The mechanism’s direction of rotation does not affect the pattern of motion.“Linear motion provides excellent performance in applications such as wet screening, desliming and dewatering, owing to the ability to break the surface tension between deck apertures and the pulp being screened,” Dorlas says. “Screen capacities vary widely, depending on the material characteristics and the separation required.“Screen design has evolved and improved over many years of operational experience and industry know-how. However, the company has actively taken these improvements to the next level and introduced the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method of design to our development technology some years ago. Our in-house FEA capabilities have assisted in optimising the mass and strength of the screens, helping to provide lower cost solutions, both in terms of capital and operational costs.”The Weir Group acquired the Linatex group of companies in September 2010, now marketed as Lintex® rubber products. Dorlas says that these products are proving a valuable addition to the Weir Minerals product line and assist the company in positioning itself as a solutions provider. The South African Linatex manufacturing facility in Alrode is capable of producing screens up to 4.9 m wide by 10 m in length.last_img read more

Micro Vault Mach is Sonys first USB 30 flash drive

first_imgUSB 3.0 has been around for over two years now, and it is slowly filtering down to all portable storage devices including pocket-friendly flash drives. The latest manufacturer to embrace the fastest SuperSpeed USB standard is Sony with the announcement of a new range of flash Micro Vault sticks.The Sony Micro Vault Mach will be offered in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities with transfer speeds of up to 120MB/s reads and 90MB/s writers. The only exception to that is the 8GB Mach, which is limited to 60MB/s reads. Real world usage will most likely be well below those figures, but still a significant boost over USB 2.0.The Mach range includes a silver aluminum casing and retractable USB connector. Sony has been very generous with the warranty and your Mach will be covered for 5 years. There’s also a couple of pieces of downloadable software in the form of File Rescue for recovering deleted files, and Pict Story for creating photo presentations automatically from the pictures stored on the drive.In terms of the overall design of the stick, it’s nothing special beyond having a metal rather than plastic casing. It weighs a mere 14 grams and measures 19.7 x 9.7 x 69.4mm making it easily pocketable, but not something you want to hang of a key chain.All models of the Mach range are set to become available before the end of January, but so far pricing hasn’t been announced. A 16GB USB 3.0 stick typically costs upwards of $25, a 32GB around $40, and then prices spike for 64GB drives. Expect pricing in the same region for the Mach drives.More at Sonylast_img read more

UA president calls for action on DACA ahead of regents meeting in

first_imgEarlier this week, University of Alaska President Jim Johnsen wrote Alaska’s congressional delegation urging it to quickly resolve the Trump administration’s directive to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.Listen nowThe Obama-era immigration policy protected certain undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. Alaska has 138 DACA recipients, according to the Center for American Progress.Johnsen said in his letter that failing to resolve the issue through congressional action could prevent students from fulfilling their academic and professional goals and would ultimately hurt the state’s economy.The letter comes as the University of Alaska Board of Regents is meeting this Thursday and Friday at the University of Alaska Southeast campus in Juneau. It’s unclear if it plans to address the DACA issue.The regents will discuss a plan to create a College of Education at the Juneau campus, a proposal meant to respond to Alaska’s teacher shortage by filling those vacancies with UA graduates.Regents will also hear updates on Strategic Pathways, a plan to cut costs throughout the university system by consolidating academic programs, and campus efforts to improve the handling of sexual discrimination and assault cases in light of a Title IX investigation by the Department of Education.The regents livestream their meetings at read more

6 Beautiful Churches That Now Serve Totally Different Purposes

first_imgUsually characterized by high ceilings, masterful sculptures, prestigious stonework, and dashing interiors, churches are often regarded as works of art, transcending their initial purpose. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that they sometimes get stripped of their religious role and become buildings intended for secular use, housing various institutions, concert venues or private residences.On this list, you will find some of the most interesting takes on turning a church into something else.Skaterham, Surrey, EnglandSkaterham”, Caterham. Surrey Photo by Dr Neil Clifton CC BY SA 2.0Starting off the list is a former military chapel in Caterham, Surrey, that was once part of a barracks complex used by the British Army. In 1995 the barracks were officially closed and the chapel was later turned into a skate park, as a result of a youth conference held in 1999.Filled with various obstacles, ramps, quarter pipes, and jump boxes, it attracts extreme sports enthusiasts from all over the U.K., and currently holds an active membership of more than 4,000 members.Selexyz Dominicanen, Maastricht, NetherlandsSelexyz Dominicanen Photo by FaceMePLS CC BY 2.0Churches have traditionally been associated with literacy, writing, and publishing. This church, built in 1294, continues the tradition in a way suitable for modern times.The medieval Gothic monastery dedicated to Saint Dominic has actually been out of order since Napoleon turned it into a field HQ during his conquest in the late 18th century. During the following centuries, the church has been used as the town’s archive, a warehouse, and as a bike store.The Selexyz Dominicanen bookstore Photo by Kevin Gessner CC BY 2.0The most recent renovations were completed in 2005. The church was transformed into a posh two-story book store that occupies a space of 1200 square meters, reserved only for literary pleasures.All of the monastery’s remarkable frescoes are preserved and are in good condition ― the most notable paintings from a series depicting the life of Thomas Aquinas, a Dominican friar and an influential scholar of the Catholic Church. Monique Corriveau-Library, Quebec City, CanadaBibliotheque Monique-Corriveau Photo by eangagnon CC BY SA 3.0Jean-Marie Roy was certainly an architect with a unique vision. His Denys-du-Plateau Church in Quebec stands out as a truly avant-garde take on traditional Catholic architecture. The church was built in 1964, with a white, narrow roof which completely blends in with the snow during harsh Canadian winters.It was deconsecrated in 1986 and turned into a library, named Monique Corriveau after a local female author who was a resident of Quebec City.The library once again emphasizes the link between religion and literacy, insisting on the overwhelming sensation of whiteness to symbolize enlightenment. The entrance to this shrine of knowledge is through a glass atrium which leads to the name of the former church, filled with bookshelves and reading tables, all in the purpose of providing maximum comfort for students and book enthusiasts alike. Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, Barcelona, SpainMareNostrum 4 supercomputer at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (2017) Gemmaribasmaspoch – CC BY-SA 4.0Among the strangest location choices to house a supercomputer is most probably Torre Girona Chapel in Barcelona, which has been the property of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia since the 1970s and had previously been in the hands of the wealthy Girona family. The 19th-century church was rebuilt in the 1940s, in the years following the Spanish Civil War.MareNostrum 2 – Refrigerated jail Photo by Vcarceler – CC BY SA 3.0The church’s interior was adjusted to house an enormous glass box that encases the $40 million MareNostrum supercomputer. It was formally established as the Barcelona Supercomputing Center on April 1, 2005.David Abián –CC BY-SA 4.0MareNostrum, now in it’s fourth incarnation, is regularly utilized in a wide range of scientific research and has contributed to fields such as astrophysics, climate modeling, and genome research. South River Vineyard, Shalersville, Ohio, United StatesSouth River Vineyard 1 | by E Photos cc by 2.0A 19th century Methodist church was actually dismantled from its original location and moved some 50 miles, to a charming vineyard in the Ohio countryside.Vineyard owner Gene Sigel spotted the old, abandoned church up for sale in 2000 — just for the price of dismantling it. He purchased the church and relocated it to become part of his winery complex, where it stands to this day. Church Brew Works, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United StatesThe_Church_Brew_WorksThe Lawrenceville neighborhood parishioners used to gather in the Church of St. John the Baptist, but since 1996, the church has been involved in a completely different type of “religious” practice. Three years after the church was closed, a craft beer manufacturer obtained the right to use it for their beer production.This might seem odd, but just as literacy and science are intertwined with the history of religion, alcohol has also featured as a big part of monastic life, especially in the Middle Ages. Trappist monks all over Europe were well-known for their famous beer, which is still produced in thirteen monasteries of the order, one of which is located in the United States.Read another story from us:  England Wants You to Camp in Abandoned Medieval ChurchesTherefore, the guys at Church Brew Works are only continuing the tradition. Although they are not monks, they have been recognized as high-quality brewers by the Great American Beer Festival, which bestowed them with the Large Brewpub Brewer of the Year Award in 2012.last_img read more

Policeman shot killed outside school while picking up children

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — An off-duty police officer was shot and killed outside a school in Playa del Carmen Thursday when he arrived to pick up one of his children.An agent of the Municipal Preventive Police was executed outside a primary school in the Ejidal neighborhood after arriving on a moto with one child to pick up his other.The shooting occurred outside the Adolfo Cisneros Cámara school where 911 emergency personnel responded to the call.According to preliminary information, the deceased policeman was identified as Mario N, who reports say came to the campus accompanied by one of his children to pick up his other son. As he was about to get on his motorcycle, two subjects approached him and fired four times, twice in the air and twice toward the policeman.When the agent fell, the assailants fled on 8th Street and 80th Avenue aboard a gray vehicle. Agents of the Municipal Preventive Police surrounded the area while the deceased agent’s children were returned to the school.There have been unverified reports that some members of the municipal police received threats after the February 20 arrest of a Los Pelones gang leader near the Municipal Palace.The municipal government of Solidarity says that in coordination with the state police, they have activated all security protocols to find those responsible for the crime.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Increasing Prices Decreasing Inventory

first_img Buyers Inventory NAR National Association of Realtors Prices 2018-02-13 Seth Welborn February 13, 2018 533 Views Last year ended with a jump in home prices, according to the Q4 2017 report from the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). In Q4 2016, the national median single-family home price was $235,400, and in Q4 2017 it jumped to $247,800, a 5.3 percent year-over-year increase.As home prices increased, so have sales, according to NAR. Existing home sales went up 4.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.62 million in Q4 2017 from Q3, and 1.3 percent higher than the 5.55 million pace during Q4 2016. NAR notes that this increase in home sales forced housing inventory to an all-time low.”A majority of the country saw an upswing in buyer interest at the end of last year, which ultimately ended up putting even more strain on inventory levels and prices,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Remarkably, home prices have risen a cumulative 48 percent since 2011, yet during this same timeframe, incomes are up only 15 percent. In the West region, where very healthy labor markets are driving demand, the gap is even wider.”NAR also notes that the national family median income rose in Q4 2017, but the combination of rising prices and mortgage rates have still kept many buyers out of the market.“While tight supply is expected to keep home prices on an upward trajectory in most metro areas in 2018, both the uptick in mortgage rates and the impact of the new tax law on some high-cost markets could cause price growth to moderate nationally,” said Yun. “In areas where homebuilding has severely lagged job creation in recent years, it’s going to be a slow slog before there’s enough new construction to cool price appreciation to a pace that aligns more closely with incomes.”NAR will release its Existing-Home Sales report for January on February 21.

Just because the NFL players are locked out doesn

first_imgJust because the NFL players are locked out doesn’t mean their lips are sealed. Some are more than willing to talk and media members are more than willing to listen.On Thursday Arizona Cardinals running back — for now — Beanie Wells exercised his right to an opinion as a guest on Happy Hour with Jody Oehler in Tucson where he was very candid about his team and what transpired in April’s draft. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation 0 Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ “I was surprised about it,” he told the host when asked about the Cardinals drafting Ryan Williams in the second round. “I definitely didn’t expect them to take a running back. I’m just working my tail off. Just preparing as I would for any other year. I’m not worrying about ‘OK they drafted a running back and I need to do this, this and that’. I don’t think like that. I think if I’m going to be in Arizona I’m going to be there but if I’m not I’m going to play football somewhere regardless.”Beanie also didn’t shy away from talking about the Cardinals’ quarterback situation. An issue he obviously was frustrated with last season.“I’d like to get it taken care of and have the coaches kind of solidify a starter and solidify a guy that we’re going to stick with and ride with throughout the whole season,” he said. “As opposed to how it was last year where we were kind of wishy washy. Things happen and hopefully we get it taken care of this year.”If the Cardinals selected Williams as a wake up call or as motivation for their former number one pick the strategy sounds like it worked about as well for the club as Derek Anderson. Wells’ nonchalant attitude towards the Virginia Tech running back’s arrival in desert can be read in one of two ways; he’s as confident in his abilities as Terrelle Pryor is in his driving ability and thus doesn’t feel threatened, or he’s like Carson Palmer and doesn’t care if he remains as a member of his current franchise.For Ken Whisenhunt and the rest of the team’s sake hopefully it’s the former and not the latter. Wells was their first round pick just two seasons ago and his, and Williams’, emergence is needed if the Cardinals’ offense hopes to establish the rushing attack that has eluded them for the better part of their over two-decades in the Valley. The other interesting tidbit to emerge from the interview was Wells’ thoughts on the quarterback situation. Was he just frustrated with the last year’s quartet of QBs or was he referring to the coaching staff’s inability to stick with one starter all year as ‘wishy washy’? Only he knows for sure, but the answer might reveal his true feelings about the coaching staff and whether he wants to remain with his current team.
